I wrote you a poem but you don't know it
If it sits in my drawer am I still a poet?
I have something to say - will you listen
Even if you don't - am I still a musician?

Chop the wood and carry the water
Anchor up and leave the harbor
Sing a song share it with others
Take a breath and start over

I stand on this stage singing in this microphone
Hoping you'll change...to the sound of my baritone
If I'm playing a club.... or filling up a stadium
I go back to my room and practice till the next song comes

Over and Over
This is the practice

Clear your mind of all distractions
Now its time to get to the practice
You may think that you can't do it
trust in the practice to get you through it
You don't need any qualifications
Avoid the drama and the expectations
You may feel like you need some magic
What you really need is to trust in the practice

Chop the wood and carry the water
Anchor up and leave the harbor
Sing a song share it with others
Take a breath and start over

Chop the wood and carry the water
Was good enough for Pope and Chaucer
Lennon/McCartney and Stevie Wonder
Chopped the wood and carried the water

Carole King and James Taylor
Cole Porter The Gershwin Brothers
Elton John and Bernie Taupin
Keith Richards and Mick Jagger
